Hindu texts refer to Vac as the wife or consort of the Creator “who contains within herself all worlds.” Sarasvati, the consort of Brahma and goddess of language, speech, wisdom and art, is identified with Vac in the Mahabharata and later Hindu tradition. Quoting the Brahmaas, author Raimundo Panikkar writes that Vac “is truly ‘the womb of the universe.’ For ‘by that Word of his, by that self, he created all this, whatever there is.’”
